The Arthur C. Clarke 2004 shortlist has been announced, as have the British Science Fiction Association Award nominees. On both lists: William Gibson’s Pattern Recognition and Tricia Sullivan’s Maul; the former just out in paperback, the latter only available in the UK. Maul deals with quasi-feminist themes and profiles a world after “Y-plagues.”
Joyce’s “House of the Dead” has been resurrected.
And the Guardian has put up a cohrent greatest hits version of the Haddon interview.
